I am a jack of all trades, master of none, well perhaps one to two things, but just going by the old saying ;)

I've been a Mac Genius for Apple, I met Steve Jobs back in 2001 while in Cupertino.

I am an old school tech, I have worked on nearly all forms of computer hardware and software through in over 25 years of tech support. Even with this knowledge I don't know everything, even though I'd like to think I do.

If you have a question about computers ask, I'll answer to the best of my ability. If I don't know it, I'll ask.


Not giving a second chance to someone is worse than not admitting that they are human in the first place. By nature's design humans are inherently flawed, and should always be given a second chance.

Well, I may try. I'm no electrical engineer either, but I see a need for one.

I have one of these, I was hoping for one that seated two. I was Hoping to RAID them together to make a high speed 128GB card.

No, only because the work I do the laptop needs to be portable, without anything sticking out. Because the environment I'm in now, if I knock something over it can be well, deadly. Hence why the Pro won't work, it extrudes too far out to be allowed.

comment Make your Screensaver as a Wallpaper in Windows 7?
OS X is relevant because I wanted to have an example of how I want it to work on Windows. I have an animated background but it's not really a background, it's the app running over the desktop. I actually can't see the desktop icons at all, unless I hide the app.. BTW, good to see you again too :)

comment Locking down firmware to keep stolen laptop from being formatted?
Obviously about the password if it's known, but I'm talking about the chance of someone who just steals it and knows you from the hole in the wall. This though is what I was expecting, but I just needed verification.

Sounds like a plan, thanks, I figured as much, but I just needed verification.

comment When using PHP math and Binary Numbers
Well I am learning C++ but I am looking for a web interface while on the road and a program for when you are in front of the computer, so for web based languages this is what I am trying to figure out if doing binary instead of what we read would be better or not.

Like what kind of language? I figured PHP and XHTML were pretty efficient, unless you are talking about HTML5 that is...

Yes, sorry I tend to use a lot of verbiage.

There is more than one way to bypass this type of concept, I agree, but what you are looking at talking about is someone above the basic user anyway.
